Basically- you cannot! Even if you can obtain a download file to install Ps, you will still need the CC Desktop App to Validate your subscription and Activate Photoshop. Without the Desktop App - Ps will cease to work. Photoshop is installed in your computer 'locally' it can operate (while Activated) without internet access. You do not have to use the 'Cloud' for anything other than- Install and Activate Ps.

Why do you pose the question - is there some issue or misunderstanding?

To get Photoshop (the latest version inc Lightroom) you take out a subscription to the Photography Plan - it costs around $10 a month. You download the application to your computer and use it in the normal way (i.e. apart from downloading Photoshop you don't need to be online to use it). Adobe checks periodically that you're up-to-date with your subscription.

Cloud has slowed my computer to a crawl -- it seems to be launching multiple variants of igfxext that are using all my memory. Will Photoshop Elements run without it once installed?

Your system is inadequate, even for Photoshop-ELEMENTS.

One site suggests this for Ps-Elements:

Im looking for the same solution. I don't want CC; since i've installed it, it's been eating memory and CPU (even if im not using PS). My proof?

 

With PS+CC installed: System gets slower and the computer hot. I can hear the CPU fans running at max RPMs. This happens even lock the mac to get lunch. If I go to activity monitor and kill everything that has CC name and after a few seconds the threads are back! just like ants in your kitchen.

 

I uninstalled PS+CC (couldn't kill just cc)  and just like that, everything is back to normal and quiet.

Im about to go back to MS paint.

All these processes are normally baked into the application - but the CC app lifts it out of the individual application and into a centralized application manager. That's really all there is to it.

 

Any big and complex software will do this.

This is 100% incorrect I have worked on extremely complex frameworks all the way down to tiny desktop apps and I can say with certainty that the CC app doesn't have a fraction of the complexity of kubernetes and dask but it wastes more resources than both combined due to poor development decisions.  If you don't have proper application architecture and you have frontend developers that have no concept of how to properly architect and design software you get trash like this... Sorry but just because ram is cheap doesn't mean you waste it.  Based on the capabilities (Auth-N/ Auth-Z / Download / Verification / Update Check ) a desktop app of this nature should not take more than 512mb ram and should hardly ever use any cpu at all especially when not in use which includes checking for updates on associated software packages.  So your argument here is invalid quit defending bad software practices which consumers have to pay for.

Well, some 20 million and more already have. That's a lot of no ones. You don't have to get on the bus, but it isn't going to wait for you.

Just because people have subscribed, doesn't mean they wanted to. I subscribed, and beleive me, I did not want to! Adobe has created a huge suite of software that we all grew up learning how to use and now we have no choice but to use this clunky, wholly unnecessary, hub sofware that complicates the usage of the software.

Actually, you do have choices, some free. The choices may not be as full-featured as the Adobe software, but one has to decide the value of those features.

I've absolutely HAD IT with Adobe.  I've used Photoshop Elements for years, and purchased the upgrades again and again for I don't know how many dollars.  Now I can't use Elements anymore without paying $30/month for some garbage called "Creative Cloud" that slows my NEW MacBook Pro to a crawl?

 

ENOUGH!  I'm going to find a different photo editor, and Adobe can kiss where the sun don't shine.

 

If I'm bothering to post, you can be sure that there are hundreds of other former (and now similarly disgrunteled) customers who didn't bother.  Apparently Adobe desires bankruptcy?  Goodbye forever, Adobe.

 

Your former customer - Glenn

You have been misinformed – the Photography Plan include the full version of Photoshop and Lightroom and updates as they become available for around $10 a month. Photoshop Elements 2022 is a light version of Photoshop and is available for a one-off payment of around $90.

When I attempt to start my Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021, I get a message that it can't start because elements of Creative Cloud are missing, and that I should reinstall CC.  But wnen I go to the Adobe website to reinstall CC, I get a pricing structure of $30 per month.  So AM I really "misinformed?"

 

I won't say it's impossible, but the error messages and web pricing are absolutely factual.

Hi Lorenza

Which version of Photoshop and OS do you have?

How much RAM and spare hard-disk capacity do you have?

If the application is saving corrupt files reset Photoshop back to the factory defaults to see if that sorts the issue out. You can reset them under the General tab in Photoshop preferences (then close and reopen the application).
